Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

When I turn the camera on, the screen displays the last picture taken. I can take a picture but there is nothing shown in the viewing screen before I take the picture, so I don't really know what it is I am taking a picture of. The menu screens come up when pressed but nothing else appears to help. I have a PowerShot A720 IS.Thanks for your help. Sincerely, Barton G. Stone [email protected]

Hi,

This\015\012 is a common problem on this set. This is either due to faulty CCD \015\012sensor or faulty LCD screen. Look at the previous recorded images or \015\012videos. If you see the same white lines in previous saved images or \015\012video's , it would be suggestive of LCD screen unless it is a faulty CCD\015\012 sensor.

If that is LCD panel, it is not worth repair.If that is \015\012CCD sensor, then you could call up Panasonic to check whether CCD sensor\015\012 of your model is under recall or not.

Read an old article :-

If it is not under recall, try to get some good replacement or repair at low cost unless invest in new camera.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have a Pentax K200D and I dropped it from less than a foot high on a rock (archaeological site) and now it won't take any new pictures. I can see the old pictures, I can see the menu and info but when I chose an option (like manual or sports) the information does appear on the screen. Also, when I take a picture, it seems to focus right, take the picture, but when I visualize it, it is completely dark... Finally, the flash won't come out if I press the button. Please help me!! :S Thx

I have a brand new G12 and have used it for the past 10 days. I loved it until it would no longer take pictures. This is the problem: I turn on the camera and the display screen is black. I take a picture and nothing appears. However, I have no problem viewing previous pictures taken before this issue. Can you please help....I really want to love the camera, but I should not be frustrated after 10 days. THANKS


That's usually the CCD Sensor. If you can take it back to the store since you just bought it, do that and exchange the camera. If they won't help you, get the original receipt and the warranty information and get it to Canon, it should be covered ... Canon G12 Digital Camera

Shooting options do appear on screen when in picture-taking mode. Can see pictures that were taken previously, however, while showing them on TV screen, camera shuts off. Is this an expensive repair.

The shutter of the camera is not opening that is why every picture taken is recorded black. It is a mechanical problem and probably has nothing to do with the sensor. Not very expensive ... Canon Digital Cameras
